“Everything is energy.”
(attributed to) Albert Einstein.
The better you feel, the better you do, and the better you do, the better you feel.
There is a concept in physics, called “resonance”, that is simple in explanation and infinite in its ability to explain.
Resonance is the tendency of a system to move (or transfer energy) easier at some frequencies than at others, specifically at whatever frequency is most natural to that system. Wiki gives a great example of resonance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resonance) which I paraphrase now with huge, unapologetic poetic license:
If you push a swing at its natural resonance point (at the point that it is naturally paused to begin the other direction in its pendulum), your push transfers a greater amount of energy and produces greater effect, or “resonance”, than if you attempt to push anywhere else in the cycle. The energy is transferred more easily, but more than that, it produces synergy, that phenomenon of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, with no more effort on any one of the parts.
If two people would have to work 2 days each to get something done, then the task would require 4 man-days to do it individually. However, if by cooperation, the task can be done in 3 days, that’s synergy. That’s resonance.
You see this everywhere.
Tap a tuning fork, and you will (if the tuning fork is pure) hear one solid, true frequency. No matter how many times the fork is tapped, it will produce that, and only that, frequency. If you tap two tuning forks of the same frequency and bring them within the range of their individual vibrational spheres of influence, you will hear an amplification of the frequency they naturally emit (the sound is louder than the two tuning forks would individually produce) but you will also hear the frequency of exactly one octave above that – an event that would never, until the end of time, happen with only one fork. If the two tuning forks are exceptionally well tuned, you may hear an octave below and two octaves above as well. Add a third fork, and the phenomenon amplifies. The number of octaves produced is limited only by the purity of the frequencies of the tuning forks. This can also be done with human voices. The closer the voices are to producing the same frequency, the more amplification, or resonance, will be produced
*the longer this frequency is produced, the more pure it becomes*
All of us are energy, and energy wants to resonate. We bring our frequencies into alignment with the frequencies around us in order to resonate. Resonance is the natural state. This is accomplished both consciously and subconsciously.
Resonance is accomplished on a cellular level. The heart of an animal functions on a cellular level, rather than on a whole-organ level, which is why if part of the heart muscle is damaged, the remainder will still function. These cells continue to operate for a while even after the organism as a whole no longer lives. Anyone who’s ever hunted an animal for food knows this: the heart continues to beat even after the animal is dead. If a few cells of the heart are separated from the whole, those cells will continue to beat even longer. I observed an experiment in college where the cells of a recently-deceased frog were removed and placed in a Petri dish, and they continued to beat. Then the cells of another frog’s heart were placed in the same Petri dish (with some sort of saline solution to facilitate communication), and at first, the two groups of cells beat according to their own frequency, but quickly, they came into alignment and began to beat at the same frequency.
Nature expects resonance. Nature orchestrates resonance. Nature demands resonance.
Resonance is accomplished on spiritual level. We, all of us, emit many frequencies. At any given time, we emit frequencies of hope, belief, doubt, fear, trust, assurance, understanding, abundance, lack ….
You see where I’m going with this?
Whatever frequencies you emit that are validated by other frequencies, those are the frequencies that will be amplified.
Here’s the best part:
You choose which frequencies you can have resonated.
You choose you own resonance.
“Whenever I talk to (insert here: “Susan” or “the people on that website” or “the people at church”), I (“feel hopeless” or “am frustrated because they stubbornly refuse to understand what I’m saying” or “feel like I can do and feel and accomplish anything” or “feel like things always just work out for me”.)
You choose to perpetuate whatever frequencies are produced by your activities, your thoughts, your habits, you fellowships.
And, more importantly, the universe always gives you what you repeatedly ask for.
(Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find…”)
(Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”)
If participating in “discussion” on so-and-so’s page makes you feel hopeless, frustrated, misunderstood, and you continue to go to so-and-so’s page, then you are repeatedly asking the universe for hopelessness, frustration, misunderstanding. Expect to receive it.
It might be worth your effort to ask yourself “Why do I WANT those things?” (Is it because you need to feel validated in your frustration or low-self esteem? Is it because you fear what is on the other side of frustration – hopelessness perhaps?) Or it might not be worth it.
Maybe it’s time simply to let all that go and ask for different things.
Ask for peace. Ask for comfort. Ask for happiness.
The universe WILL give it to you.
“It is your faith that has healed you,” and there is no limit to what your faith can do.
(Mark 10:52, Luke 7:50, Mark 5:34, Luke 17:6)
Go and be healed.
